Though Québec City is best known for its French food, the city’s locals also have a big love of Italian cuisine. Little wonder that there are superb Italian restaurants throughout the city. We list the best of La Dolce Vita dining that this Canadian city has to offer.
Il Matto has become a go-to recommendation for locals and tourists alike. Though it offers classic Italian comfort food, fusion dishes are available as well. The mushroom pappardelle is an excellent choice for the second course, while the fried calamari and eggplant Parmesan make for excellent opening choices. As for dessert, the bomba, a type of filled donut, comes covered in chocolate and hazelnut spread for a sweet and filling ending. The wine list is quite lengthy, as to be expected. Located in the lower Old City, the restaurant has a pleasant atmosphere in a low-lit space.
